If you're paying them... who cares?  It's your dime, your way or the highway :)

Having done that... don't.  It's a pain in the rear.

DreamWeaver should support the tags, and ignore the JSTL.  My biggest worry with DreamWeaver
would be the HTML code the thing generates.  Typically it's pretty abysmal.  I have marketing
people who generate better HTML then DreamCleaver does.

I'd write into the contract, the jsp tags and W3C compliant HTML code, all for a fixed price
or you'll end up paying for their cleaning up after their "tool".
